      What makes lawyers and spies so determined

      When I saw the end, I remembered: I had seen this movie before! The exchange of prisoners of war is unforgettable. But when I look at it again, the stage of life is different, and the feelings are completely different.

      I have admiration and curiosity about lawyers: what supports him, in the face of contempt and threats from the crowd, incomprehensible, in the face of obstruction from family, bosses and clients, judges, and even personal safety cannot...

      a good soldier

      "I know this man, if the accusation is true, he served a foreign power, but he also served faithfully. If he was a soldier in the opposing army, he was a good fighter, he did not do it to save himself Fleeing the battlefield. He refused to serve his arresters, he refused to betray his cause, he refused to be a coward. A coward must have lost his dignity long before he ran away from the battlefield. But Rudolf Abel never did that, don't we? He should be given all the power to define...

      The main theme does not necessarily equal political propaganda

      Of course, the judicial spirit and humanitarianism mentioned in the movie are the output of very common American values. After all, these main creators have always been most influenced by these values.

      But the story of Bridge of Spies is valuable in one place. The one who upholds these values ​​is Donovan. This also determines that Bridge of Spies is not a film with political propaganda significance, but personal heroism has become endearing. For the rest, the justices don't care about...

      At this moment, the truth is on the side of the few

      Tom Hanks always gave a high score performance, but it is surprising that as the plot developed, the Russian uncle who was unremarkable and even despised at the beginning turned out to be radiant and even overshadowed Hanks. It can be said that there are countless fans. . Sure enough, for a real artist, age is not a problem, appearance is not a problem, and it is not a problem to be annoying, and the acting is good enough to make people addicted! What struck me the most was Hanks's saying don't...

      In the contradictions of the main theme movie, the government is always the first to express its position, which is more active but conservative. The hero is passive first, persuaded and then most active and open, gambling. People always eat melons innocently. Heroes will transcend the moral code that governments and citizens follow, and the end result will be in their favor. However, it is still too linear to say this. You can use the three indicators of action, position, and values ​​to map...

      Spielberg has dealt with too much of the prose this time, especially for teaching. The Coen brothers revised the draft, half of which was the favor of "Thunderbolt", and the other half should be the Cold War complex. The movie's focus wasn't Spartacus, but Billy Wilder's Merry...

    Behind the scenes gags

    The title "Spy Bridge" refers to the Glinik Bridge in East Germany during the Cold War. The scene in the film was shot on the real bridge.

    Evaluation action

    "Bridge of Spies" writes about an impossible friendship between two rival camp men. What slowly rises in the work is a spirit of transcendence, which wipes away the dust of the political environment and historical events falling on the beautiful human nature. Beyond the Cold War mentality, it makes the "center of goodness" in human nature flash. The film's transcendent emotions and truths write about the hero's brave defense of the...

    Movie quotes

    • Agent Williams: [to uniformed pilots] Okay, drivers, here's the deal. You've been selected for a mission, which you are not to discuss with anyone outside of this room. No one. I don't care who you trust. Wife, mother, sweetheart - the good Lord when you pray at night. You don't tell any of them anything of what I'm about to tell you.

      Agent Williams: Each of you drivers has met certain qualifications. High level security clearance. Exceptional pilot ratings in excess of the required hours, flight time in a single-seat aircraft. We are engaged in a war. This war does not, for the moment, involve men-at-arms. It involves information. You will be collecting information. You will be gathering intelligence about the enemy.

      Agent Williams: The intelligence you gather could give us the upper hand in a full thermonuclear exchange with the Soviet Union. Or it could prevent one. For public purposes, as far as your wife or mother or sweetheart or the good Lord above, your mission does not exist. If it does not exist, *you* do not exist. You cannot be shot down. You cannot be captured.

      Agent Williams: [stands up to leave] You work for the CIA now.

    • Rudolf Abel: You've never asked me if the charges were true. If I am indeed a spy.

      James Donovan: This is how we do it. The case against you matters. Making them prove it matters. The fiction is: Whether you did it or not doesn't matter. The state has to prove it, that you're a spy.

    • Agent Williams: [speaking to spy plane pilots] What you know about the plane is as secret as the plane itself. If capture is a foregone conclusion, you go down with your plane. Now, if you think you can ditch and get away, if you're close enough to a border, fine. You know the ejection protocol. But if you ditch, you bring the dollar with you.

      [shows a silver disc]

      Agent Williams: All right, there's a pin inside.

      [removes a pin]

      Agent Williams: You scratch your skin anywhere, it's instantaneous. If you think you are about to be captured, you use it. Drivers, you understand me?

      Agent Williams: Spend the dollar.
